Bishopbriggs Churches Together (BCT) is a body set up by formal agreement between Christian Churches in Bishopbriggs on 25th March 2002. This date relates to the signing of a new constitution details of which can be seen elsewhere on this website. The constitution details the objectives of BCT and in many ways it mirrors the structures and ways of working recently adopted by Action of Churches Together in Scotland. There are also close links with Glasgow Churches Together.
A leaflet (right) carrying information on this website was circulated throughout Bishopbriggs in March 2003 to mark the anniversary of the signing.
There is a long history of good ecumenical relations in Bishopbriggs dating back to the time of the Bishopbriggs Council of Churches, of which BCT is the successor body. Community survey work undertaken ecumenically as a result of the local approach to the Church of Scotland’s Glasgow Presbytery Mission Plan of a few years ago led to the development and formalisation of BCT.
There are good links between BCT and Bishopbriggs Community Council and BCT is particularly involved in ceremonies associated with the Gala Day in June, the Remembrance Parade in November and the Jubilee Beacon lighting at Hogmanay.
